Double stroller advice?

We aren't currently planning a trip, though I'm still aiming for spring break while EDS is still free. I'm mainly just looking for advice on our normal stroller, though this is the one we would take to Disney. Here's our makeup: EDS is 2y4m. He's not a huge stroller fan, though he's learning that he gets to go more places if he rides. YDS is almost 2 mos. Both are big for their age. EDS is consistently off the charts for height and in the 80s for weight. YDS is already over 12lbs.

I borrowed a graco duoglide that I can use, but I hate it. I don't like the tandem seating at all, and I really think my oldest will be happier beside his brother. I'm looking at the city mini and the zooper tango doubles. Both have great features and reviews. The zooper seems like a better deal with trays included. Any reviews? The price is identical.

My sister had the Zooper with her first daughter and it was nice for around town, but it was harder to push than my Baby Trend Expedition.

She just had her second child and she purchased the Citi Elite. It is a breeze to push and fold. I took it with me on my August trip to Disney and it was super. Easy to push and fold and maneuver. It also comes in a double. The Elite is a little larger than the Mini and has jogging tires which make it super easy to push.

I think the Mini is also great.

I have the City Mini single and LOVE IT. Talk about light and easy to fold! I've heard nothing but great things about the double too!

I have twins, and I had the front to back Graco DuoGlider when they were infants. As they got bigger, I hated it! First, it was hard to maneuver, and second, the boy in the back seat was constantly kicking the boy in the front seat. We did a Disney trip with them right before they turned 3, and I purchased a City Mini Double. I *LOVE* it!! I regret not getting it sooner. It is so easy to push, both seats recline and have wonderful sun shades. It's super easy to fold, fits through standard doorways, and is so light. My DH had no problem at all quickly folding it down for the bus rides at Disney. My bus are now nearly 4, and I still use it occasionally for mall trips, or long walks around the neighborhood. It was definitely a great purchase for me. My boys are also tall for their age, they are 75th and 90th percentile for height, and the stroller still accommodates them perfectly.
Good luck with your choice, but I would definitely recommend a side by side!

Why not think about a stroller board? They are easy to take on and off a stroller and as your big one gets older he may not want to sit at all, but can still ride. It so much easier to navigate crowds at Disney and at home (the Mall, parades, walks to parks, etc.). I bought ours used on Ebay for a 1/4 of the price.

To update, we ordered the Britax B agile double last night. I tried it (technically the single) and the baby jogger in the store and found them to be ridiculously similar. (baby jogger is now suing britax). Each had some things I liked better than the other, but I had decided on the baby jogger. It turned out that DH had a discount code for amazon and we could get an even better price than I was getting at the store. For some reason, we couldn't get the code to work on the baby jogger, so we went britax. I can't wait for it to get here!

A board won't work for us yet. My oldest isn't mature enough to stay with us unless he's strapped in. A board may be an option with one of our existing strollers in another year or so.
